Since my motherboard died, I have been forced to use my work laptop to do most of my work. It has also been necessary to borrow my wife’s computer to try and get access to my hard drive. Thankfully both of our computers were identical, so booting from my hard drive on her computer will not result in driver / chipset issues. I feel like I am closer, but it takes a while. While I have been out of the PC repair game for some time, thankfully the concepts remain the same. Heck even the utilities are mostly the same, only updated to adapt to the new technologies. My biggest challenge was deciding if I wanted an LGA 1511 or LGA 2011 CPU. The LGA 2011 won out. So, here on Monday I should be ordering my new hardware (motherboard, RAM, CPU and CPU cooler, power supply, and SSD) from Amazon, and I should have them by Wednesday if all goes as planned. I have been getting the rest of the rebuild prepped in the meantime. I have pulled all the old hardware out of my case, it is now sitting on my workbench, sad and alone. Don’t worry little fella, you will have some new tenants soon.
At this time, it looks like I will be 3d printing until late next week with any luck, but I may start twitch streaming my prints live after that time. I will need to pick up a new camera, but I have a line on those already. Stay tuned.
Thank you everyone for your support, and thanks for stopping by.

We changed the recording time again, and also changed up how some things are done and I feel that we are really dialing the process in. As a matter of fact things went so well that I feel like I do not need to edit the episode at all. I will verify this once I give it a second listen today and if that is the case there is a holiday surprise waiting for everyone (and its not even the "holidays").
My wife and I went over to Andrews last night and partook in his early Memorial Day BBQ and get togther. Not only was the food really good, the company was great, and we had fun as well. Thanks to Andrew and his wife for hosting!
There was one piece of news that I was wanting to cover this podcast which deals with art and 3D printing. Specifically: Is 3D printed art really art? This is such a good debate topic that I think it is better that we go over it later. I find these art debate topics interesting and I feel we could possibly do a whole episode on it because this is something that the video game industry went though years ago, and in some degree still goes though today. I can think of a few people that I would like in on the discussion as well. Who knows maybe a panel or round table show? I know this is ambitions, but I have some local artists in mind and think it would make for something special. I would like to hear your thoughts on if you think 3D printed art is really art by posting your thoughts on Twitter. Be sure to tag me (@NoImSoddOff) and use hashtag #Is3dPrintingArt. I am interested to see what you all think.
As always the articles we did not cover is posted below, and thank you for stopping by!
